A big month for the ’30s thanks in no small part to TCM’s spotlight on pre-codes in September!

DVD collection update:

  • In Her Shoes: Picked this one up cheap from Amazon when I had to make a belated textbook order. It was a moment of DVD-shopping therapy after the campus bookstore cancelled my textbook order without telling me… a week after classes had already begun. Ah, the joys of grad school! I’m glad I picked up this film, though. It had been a few years since I’d seen it and I liked it even more after giving it a re-watch this month.
  • Singin’ in the Rain: I was holding out for the Ultimate Collector’s Edition of this but decided to just go ahead and get the DVD when I ran across it for $7.50 at Target. I still want the fancy edition, but this will tide me over until I can afford the beast.

And that’s it!

    1. My dad and I like to see new releases together. We usually go at least once a week, sometimes more! (And I do drag him along to revival screenings as well to give him some exposure to the classics, haha.)


  1. Hmmm…out of the twenty films you watched in September, the one that interests me most is…THE SCREAMING SKULL! I’m watching it this week, and will have my review ready in plenty of time before our Halloween cheese day!


      1. As I am with yours! We still have to dream up a banner for our mini-blogathons…I was thinking something with ‘Invasion of the Star Creatures’ as a background, since it was our first! But what should we call it? The TMP/CM Cheese-a-Thon?
